Proposed Ohio marijuana bill topic of Friday workshop

Published: Wed, January 1, 2014 @ 4:29 a.m.


The potential impact of House Joint Resolution 6, Ohio’s proposed marijuana legislation that could allow people 21 or older to purchase and consume marijuana, will be the topic of a workshop Friday at Lowellville High School.

It will be led by Brenda Heidinger, from the Mahoning County Alcohol and Drug Addiction Services Board, and Angela McClellan, from the Coalition for a Drug-Free Mahoning County. They will discuss what passage of the bill could mean for the state’s employers, law enforcement, businesses, students and schools. The workshop is open to the public. It will begin at 4:30 p.m. in the high school’s band room, and will last about one hour.
